Academics - GenEd, Liberal Arts, & Transferring
I have been a career teacher. I began by independently teaching English in Taiwan after college. I continued by teaching 9th grade communication in Tulsa, Oklahoma for two years before moving to Thief River Falls, Minnesota where I taught 7th grade communications at FMS for six years. I have been at NCTC teaching all forms of communication, composition, and public speaking since 2004. I have also been a varsity coach for the Thief River Falls speech team since 2010.
